the national average. for example, new hampshire was 30% above the national average. massachusetts was 43%, maine, 67%, and florida, 68%. unfortunately those living in these and many other states can expect to see higher prices once again this winter, and this is precisely why we are bringing to the floor h.r. 1900. h.r. 1900 simply would bring certainty and agency accountability to the natural gas pipeline permitting process. it would allow natural gas pipelines to be built in a safe, responsible, and timely manner. it would also make existing natural gas pipelines safer. during the legislative hearing on h.r. 1900, we heard testimony from industry of a corrosive natural gas pipeline that could not be replaced in a timely manner because an agency missed the deadline to issue a permit by nearly a year. the american people demand better than this. and so as we hear discussion and consider amendments to h.r. 1900, i want to thank once again the members of the subcommittee, the staffs, and representative pompeo for all the work on this important legislation. i respectfully reserve the balanc

massachusetts. ms. warren: i ask that the quorum be vitiated. the presiding officer: without objection. ms. warren: mr. president, i rise today to talk about the retirement cries in this country, a crisis at that has received far too little attention and far too little response from washington. i spent most of my career studying the economic pressures on middle-class families, families who worked hard, who played by the rules, but who still found themselves just hanging on by their fingernails. starting in the 1970's, even as workers became more productive, their wages flattened out, while things like health care and sending their kid to college kept going up. workers rolled up their slieiv , sent both pairptses into the workforce. that meant higher child care costs, a second car and higher taxes. they just tightened their belts more cutting spending wherever they could. adjusted for inflation, families spend less than they did a generation ago on food, clothing, furniture, appliances and other flexible purchases. when that still wasn't enough to cover rising costs, they took on debt, cree

"forbes" did show it's the lowest growth in government spending by any president since eisenhower. you can point out that ronald reagan grew the federal government by 61,000 jobs. and president bush did it as well with the department of homeland security. i think you might just want to blow their minds, ed, and say that back at the first thanksgiving, when the wamp and noag fed the pilgrims, they invented socialism, front documented immigrants and they will spend the rest of the night trying to process that. >> i think a lot of conservative relatives, though, have kind of given up on the fact, you know, that he's -- that they
